Intro Log: Eight Legs No Heart

Who: New arrivals and everyone else!
What: The intro log for June.
Where: The colosseum and all around the city.
When: June 10th-15th
Warnings: Spiders. Soooo many spiders. New people. Probably swearing.


For once, the new arrivals to Hadriel will not be waking up on the cold hard ground of the colosseum. Oh, sure, you'll still awaken in the arena - but this time the Door has been kind enough to ensure that you wake up comfortably arranged in a very nice chair. Or maybe not so comfortably. Some of those look pretty awkward - hopefully you didn't wake up with a crick in your neck! And hey, feel free to try to drag some of these super cool chairs to your new homes. They're probably not cursed or anything.

As you make your way out of the arena, be careful getting to close to the walls - well, except that's the only way out, so good luck! Chilling up on there waiting to get the drop on you are Skulltulas. These funky-looking spiders have squishy underbellies, but their upper exoskeletons are hard and very difficult to break through. They really just want to nibble you a few times, and maybe suck out all of your blood. No big deal, right? Have fun!

Have you conquered your arachnophobia and managed to escape? Great! Feel free to go explore the rest of the city! Find a house, find a new monster, or simply scavenge for supplies. Good luck, and enjoy your stay in Hadriel!

► This log covers June 10th-15th.
► Feel free to make your own logs as well!
► All characters arrive with phones that have network communication.
► Please put your character's name and open/closed in the subject line of your starters!

Good thing Rey isn't arachnophobic, isn't it?

She had encountered many spiders in her day, though nothing quite as big as these creatures. Figures. Nothing ever seems to be of normal size in this place.

Just in case one of the newly arrivals (or existing ones happening upon the scene) by chance have a fear of spiders, Rey is here to help. Sort of. She's made her way into the Colosseum just fine on her own so far, anyway.

Seemingly unarmed, at that, not even sporting her usual armor when she readies herself for these events.

Unsurprisingly, Rey also happens to be one of those that finds themselves turning to face that seven year old boy. A boy who also appears to be armed, unlike herself.

Wonderful.

"Hey," she calls to him, motioning for the boy to follow. "Know a way out."

Rey has a friendly face, right? She's totally trustworthy!
muscovy: (excited)

[personal profile] muscovy 2016-06-10 09:37 pm (UTC)(link)
Her trustworthy face is totally the reason why Muscovy's features light up when he sees her, his smile widening into a grin as he nods and immediately comes over to follow her.

He had worried that with suddenly waking up here he would have lost his family, since they had not been in that hall, too. But Rey is here! Maybe she just woke up earlier. Does that mean that Firo is here, too? Have all the people from that jungle planet been brought here?
circumitus: Because you're marine grade... You rascal. (you need 400 proof or marine proof)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-06-10 09:58 pm (UTC)(link)
Of course, it doesn't immediately occur to Rey that the kid knows her already. Far as she's concerned, he's just happy there's someone willing to help a small child with a gun. It's not exactly an image that's all too encouraging.

Rey turns and leads the boy towards an exit, with six chatted and still-smoking remains of what had once been the oversized spiders scattered about.

Without another word, she directs him through a hole in the Colosseum, suspecting that he will be swift to follow suit.
muscovy: (we're good)

[personal profile] muscovy 2016-06-11 07:54 am (UTC)(link)
He does follow suit, trying to close the remaining distance between them though he isn't nearly as fast as he would like to be - the large backpack with the various big items strapped to it is slowing him down a good deal.

Not that he's planning on taking her hand, he might never have seen her use her powers in a combat situation, but he's very sure that her having her hands free and having a bit of space to herself is a good idea when there might be more of those spider-like creatures left. Because like this, she can take care of them should any others show up.

With only a few glances at the remains of the spiders he climbs through the hole and then peers up at her. Where to now?
circumitus: We know how you feel. (kid you're lost in the wheel)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-06-11 06:35 pm (UTC)(link)
Considering that her hands are about all she has to fight with in this situation (not entirely true, but it's pretty damn close), it's appreciated that Muscovy keeps his to himself. Not that Rey would know what to do if some random child started taking her hand for seemingly no reason.

"The residential area of the city's the safest place," she explains once they're free of the arena part of the Colosseum. Then she, not so helpfully, adds, "...Usually."

If one wishes to find comfort in trying times, they are best not to turn to Rey.
muscovy: (from the east)

[personal profile] muscovy 2016-06-12 05:47 pm (UTC)(link)
So Rey definitely woke up earlier, has likely been here for a time, even. Like Galadriel, though he can't tell if she has been here that long already. However long that is.

"When are they not safe?"

If she calls them "residental areas" with that kind of air of self-evidence, they will probably be easy to recognize, so he doesn't ask about that. But the times should be more closely defined.

"Right now, actually."

With new arrivals come the new monsters, and they don't tend to recede into the caves with the other creatures right away. At least the spiders aren't as destructive as the fireflies were, when they were literally setting everything on fire.

"Still, haven't heard of anything infiltrating anyone's home." She shrugs. "Should be fine."

Right. She can just get the kid to safety and go home. Or back to the Colosseum.

Or something.
muscovy: (Is that so?)

[personal profile] muscovy 2016-06-12 06:05 pm (UTC)(link)
"Why are the streets unsafe now?"

His voice is still cheerful, but there is a hint of impatience in it. He can't see anything that seems very unsafe. Well, not here, anyway. The spiders were dangerous, but they got past them now, right?

Rey sighs, keeping her eyes focused on the path in front of her than the boy.

"Because once the spiders start leaving the arena with everyone else, they're probably going to make their way into the city for a bit."

With any luck, they'll figure out their place and head for the caves before too much damage can be done.
muscovy: (Is that so?)

[personal profile] muscovy 2016-06-12 06:48 pm (UTC)(link)
"But they will go somewhere else after a few days?"

That is good.

He makes sure to keep an eye on her and not lose her, but he will also look around, study the buildings and ruins that they pass, looking a bit longer at the far away walls of the cave.

"How big is the city?"
circumitus: tall, lanky, uses teeth when giving head, and runs like a giraffe. don't do it, man... (no i know her type)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-06-12 08:06 pm (UTC)(link)
"They're supposed to."

Not promising that they actually will; there's always a possibility of a break in the pattern someday. Rey just can't see that being today.

She shrugs. "Pretty big. Not that it matters, since it seems like all of the previous tenants have been cleared out some time ago. We're all that's here."

A situation which may be familiar to Muscovy. Something to do with an uninhabited ship the size of Manhattan Island, perhaps?
muscovy: (do you want a sunflower?)

[personal profile] muscovy 2016-06-12 08:37 pm (UTC)(link)
It does indeed sound familiar. Which brings up another question.

"And nobody knows how to leave this place, yes?"

It was the same on the Tranquility, at least to a degree - the shuttles were there, but in constant need of repair. And while there were ways to pull things over from their worlds and send them back in the Drabwurld, none of those that had been pulled there possessed them.

...He probably should feel some kind of dread at that, but really, he's with Rey and Firo here, and unless there was a way to take them home with him (and assuming that this place is like the Drabwurld, like he assumed that the Tranquility was, where they would go home to the same time that they came from) he'd like to stay with them as long as possible, unless there is a way to stay together even if they go home.
circumitus: Otherwise you'd be a dad by now. (thank god you're gay)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-06-13 02:37 am (UTC)(link)
Of course, it still hasn't struck Rey that Muscovy is one of those who already knows her. So far this conversation has been pretty par for the course, as she guides the stray child onto the city streets, heading in the direction of the spirals. Bringing him home doesn't even occur to her, especially since that isn't just her call to make now.

"They don't." She shrugs, and continues walking, not even looking at the boy when she does. "Suppose one could try their luck in the caves, but it doesn't seem that those who do end up so fortunate."

Rey, on the other hand, isn't willing to make that gamble. She's spent enough time in the caves to know where it leads...

Exactly back to where she started.
muscovy: (Is that so?)

[personal profile] muscovy 2016-06-13 09:39 am (UTC)(link)
"Do they die?"

He's still speaking in the same cheerful voice as he has the whole time - they're just exchanging information, after all, and this is a very basic one. It might be a logical conclusion, but Rey expressed it very vaguely so it might be something else.

Especially coming from someone who climbs into the Tranquility alone when that usually gets people badly hurt.
circumitus: (503): forewarning i'll probably have done those drugs with you (i wanna bring you to show and tell)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-06-13 12:51 pm (UTC)(link)
The cheeriness of the kid's voice doesn't go beyond her notice, but she doesn't think it's too weird. Well, it's weird, but she's seen some pretty chipper people around here get by, despite their circumstances. It's just easy for Rey to assume that this kid is one of those weirdos.

"Probably. Definitely seen some come back worse for wear, though. Have gone through the tunnels before as well and haven't found any sort of exit."

A Rey Stunt that Muscovy would no doubt be so surprised to hear.
muscovy: (shades of blood)

[personal profile] muscovy 2016-06-13 01:01 pm (UTC)(link)
Seriously, she needs to stop being silly and take along company when she does such things.

"You took someone along, yes?"
circumitus: Keep up the good work. (it's a 12/12/12 miracle)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-06-13 01:07 pm (UTC)(link)
Rey is very silly, even though that isn't quite the descriptor that she would ever use for herself.

"Sometimes." She shrugs like it's no big thing. "Don't really need to, though. Can handle things fine alone."

They're closing in on the Spires. Rey can just drop the kid off there and be on her own merry way. Or so she assumes.
muscovy: (from the east)

[personal profile] muscovy 2016-06-13 01:15 pm (UTC)(link)
It's okay, silly people mostly don't realize just how silly they are until he tells him, and sometimes not even afterwards.

"You should go with someone so they can help you if you get hurt or if too many monsters attack you, yes?"
circumitus: If you can't drink cheep beer and whiskey with me, I don't want you. (fuck it)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-06-13 01:23 pm (UTC)(link)
Generally Rey is a quick study. When it comes to social tacts, however, she's a little slow on the uptake.

"Sure, whatever." Why does he seem to care? It's not like he knows her or anything.

Oh wait.

...

Hey, what do you know? They've made it to the Spire! At least this seems to be one of the intact structures. Sweet.

"Anyway, this is it," Rey gestures towards the tall, peculiar building. "Should be safe here, so long as you keep your door shut."
muscovy: (we're good)

[personal profile] muscovy 2016-06-13 01:24 pm (UTC)(link)
He nods and waits for Rey to lead the way.

After all they're going to her place, right?
circumitus: its people like u that make people like me go to rehab. he has a lazy eye for christ sakes. (your girlfriend is a south jersey whore)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-06-13 01:27 pm (UTC)(link)
Why is he looking at her like that?

"What? You need help finding an empty apartment or something?"

Can't you just do that on your own?
muscovy: (we're good)

[personal profile] muscovy 2016-06-13 01:29 pm (UTC)(link)
"But I will live with you, so finding an empty one would be very silly, yes?"

Rey is being very silly today. ...A bit more than she should be, really, and he's finally starting to wonder if something could be off here. She ...looks a bit different too, doesn't she?
circumitus: I ONLY KNOW HOLA. (EVERYONE IS SPEAKING SPANISH)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-06-13 01:42 pm (UTC)(link)
With the exception of the scars on her face, there are some noticeable differences from the Rey that Muscovy remembers. For one, she's got all ten of her fingers, which would be a good thing, except...

"Why would you want to do a thing like that?" She arches an eyebrow. Although she's recently begun to live with Nick, Rey doesn't see herself as a particularly desirable roommate.
muscovy: (I can help us)

[personal profile] muscovy 2016-06-13 01:45 pm (UTC)(link)
"Because you are my mother, yes?"

Duh.

....This is getting troubling. Now that he looks at her hands, too... does this mean that she forgot, like Galadriel? He doesn't like that idea.
circumitus: If you can't drink cheep beer and whiskey with me, I don't want you. (fuck it)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-06-13 02:11 pm (UTC)(link)
What.

"What." Rey blinks. Did he just say what she thought he did?

She shakes her head. It isn't the first time someone has ever come up to her, acting like they knew her when she had no memory of them. Both in this world and her home. Having your head and memories tampered with tends to invite incidents like those. But what this kid is suggesting is something entirely new. No one has ever thought of her as a mother before.

Until now, evidently. But why?

"You must be mistaken. Can't be your mother. That's not even possible..."
